After the Snow, John and Queen

12 x 12 oil on board
I really liked the composition of this one, but wasn't sure how to approach the painting. The colours are very subdued, there is no sunshine or reflected surfaces. I decided to keep it very simple and subtle, even omitting traffic lights and street poles. I will have to live with this one for awhile before I decide if it is done.
This double streetcar heads up Queen Street past Much Music. The Chapters sign is visible down John Street.

The first thing that attracted me in this painting was the wonderful atmosphere. As I scrolled down and say those fabulous ruts of vertical snow and the strong horizontal train........wow!
